Thurrock theatre group begin Edinburgh Festival run

Rendered Retina

A THURROCK theatre group begin their three week run at the Edinburgh Festival today (Aug 4th).

Rendered Retina’s show is called Form and follows their successful run in 2016 with Timor of Athens.

Form is described as follows:

“We have all been bored, trapped in monotony. We have all dreamt of escape. Our minds construct fantastic worlds to break us out of routine, taking us to our own private paradise. But eventually we have to come back. We always have to come back. Form is a non-verbal, physical journey of escape and daydreaming, taking the audience on a stunning visual voyage through environments created out of tables, stationary and 20,000 paper balls. Three performers portray office workers happily oppressed by routine, except one.

Performance times

1 Bristo Square, Edinburgh, EH8 9AL

“Rendered Retina are young, fresh and enthusiastic. We could tell that they have a passion and genuine love for theatre… What Rendered Retina did was inventive, slick and clever” James Seager, Producer, Les Enfants Terribles

The company have won awards for both shows being performed at the fundraising event. Their first show, Timon of Athens, won the awards for ‘Best Directed’ and ‘Best Show’ at the Scratch Shakespeare Festival 2015 in Winchester. Their second and current show, Form, won the Les Enfants Terribles award in February this year, selected from over 100 theatre companies across the country.
